Karena kejadian sikut menyikut tersebut, Gigi diberitakan oleh banyak media yang mengatakan “Not a Model Behavior”, membaca hal tersebut Gigi Hadid menulis surat terbuka untuk para media yang menulis artikel tentang kejadian yang dialami oleh Gigi di Milan Fashion Show, berikut isi dari surat terbuka Gigi,

 

I remember taking the time, as it all felt slo-mo, to look at him, a stranger, and my first reaction was: “Get me out of this situation.” I played volleyball, and my coaches talked about muscle memory. I started boxing two years ago and I always remembered that. Since then, I hadn’t been in a situation that forced me to fight back, but it just came out when he grabbed me — it wasn’t a choice. I do have that fighter in me.

Honestly, I felt I was in danger, and I had every right to react the way I did. If anything, I want girls to see the video and know that they have the right to fight back, too, if put in a similar situation. Practicing self-defense is important so that when you’re in the moment, reacting from muscle memory comes more naturally to you than freezing up. Confidence in your own ability to defend yourself comes with educating yourself about it, and is a massive advantage when in an unsafe situation.
